The Manchester City side sees five changes from the selection that dismantled Atalanta in the Champions League on Tuesday night. João Cancelo comes back in at right full-back for Kyle Walker, while John Stones returns to the centre of defence following the injury to Rodri.

It’s just the one change in midfield for Pep Guardiola – despite his impressive performance against the Serie A side, Phil Foden drops to the bench as David Silva returns to the fold and also captains the team.

As for the attacking three, Bernardo Silva comes in for Riyad Mahrez while Gabriel Jesus replaces Sergio Aguero, despite his brace in the Champions League. Raheem Sterling unsurprisingly retains his spot in the attacking line after his hat-trick and assist.
